Default video items visibility and color grading interact...

Hi !
i'm working on live recording:
One musician (multi-instruments)
8 Tracks
3 cameras (Iphones)

#Mix is done,
#Video editing (fade in and out) also done.
using: video processor plugin --> "items fades affect videos"

#But i need to do some color grading on each Iphones video tracks.

so with video processor plugins and presets like "brightness/contrast", "RGB" and others i've tried to work on those 3 tracks.

Unfortunatelly, due to the setting:
File-->Project setting-->video
there is only 2 options : video items visibility
->1º Items in lower numbered track replace higher
->2º Items in higher numbered track replace lower.

It's beahaves like "layers", i mean:
case 1º if you put brightness on track 1, it will also add brightness on track 2 and 3
Case 2º if you put brightness on track 3, it will also add brightness on track 2 and 1

And it's very annoying.
Every colorgrade changes on tracks 1 affect track 2 and 3
every colorgrade changes on track 2 affects track 3
every colorgrade change on track 3 only affect track 3

How can i disable this "layers" beahavior ?
Many thanks for the answer

Item FX is the easiest but you can also use the preset to have track FX not affect items on other tracks (put that last in the FX bin on a track with sparse items)
